Off The Left Eye is a project of the Swedenborg Foundation. We dig into Emanuel Swedenborg’s writings to learn more about the spiritual backdrop of this life we’re living, and then work hard to craft a narrative to share what we learn, using visual tools of animations, illustrations, and diagrams to deliver the concepts in an entertaining, enlightening, and uplifting way.
We craft our messaging in the realms of both writing and execution. We combine thorough scholarship of Swedenborg’s works, careful shaping of narrative content, high-quality art, graphic design, and production technology, and a current awareness of our audience’s interests to create vibrant, relevant, and deep programming to support people in their lives.
But we’re more than videos. We’re a community. We love to support our viewers in engaging with the ideas we relay in our content. We have a robust and passionate moderation team here to respond to your questions as you explore our content, whether that’s through commenting on the website, on social media, under YouTube videos, or in our livestream chats.
Our goal is for you to feel the love and support inherent in our content no matter the avenue through which you engage with us. It is our hope that our content may bring comfort to the suffering, peace to the unsettled, and offer tools to help overcome spiritual hardships, no matter your cultural or religious background. You are welcome here and we hope you find the knowledge, love, and support you desire.
When the common good of all is what people focus on, then no one ever usurps another’s happiness or destroys another’s freedom but promotes and increases it as much as possible. That is why heavenly communities seem to form a unit, and this is the effect of mutual love alone, which comes from the Lord.
—Emanuel Swedenborg, Secrets of Heaven 1316
